All Six NESEra Mega Man Games Coming to Mobile Next Year

first_img ‘Project Resistance’ Trailer Shows New Multiplayer ‘Resident Evil’11 Things We’re Looking Forward to at PAX West With the success of Super Mario Run, it is clear that mobile gamers love to play games with characters they remember from their childhood. One of the biggest stars on the Nintendo Entertainment System was Mega Man. The Blue Bomber has had his games released on a multitude of systems over the years but, for whatever reason, never on mobile devices. Capcom is fixing this error next year when it will finally bring the original six Mega Man games to iOS and Android.According to Famitsu (with translation by Rockman Corner), all six classic NES-era Mega Man games will be heading to mobile devices on January 6, 2017. Each game will be sold separately and feature beginner-friendly gameplay options, auto-fire, auto-charge, and adjustable game speeds. On top of that, each game can be synced with the Rockman Unity app, which is a news-feed of Rockman Unity in app form. After completing certain missions in the games, players will be able to unlock monthly rewards like exclusive lock screen wallpapers.The feature that should stand out the most for players is the one that makes the games easier. Nintendo games, in general, were always brutally challenging but the Mega Man games, in particular, are notorious for being excessively complicated. It can be argued that the reason Mega Man 2 is the most popular game in the series because it had a relatively easy “Normal” mode. Having an option that makes the games easier to play through should make them more accessible to a wider audience.For now, the mobile Mega Man games will only be available in Japan (where the series is called Rockman). However, given how popular Mega Man is in the West, I think it is safe to say that we’ll eventually see these game wash up on our mobile shores. When that happens, we’ll let you all know.

SelfDriving Spacecraft Could Save Earth From Asteroid Impacts

first_img Scientists Uncover New Evidence of Asteroid That Killed DinosaursWashington Monument-Sized Asteroid Will Fly By Earth on Aug. 28 The European Space Agency’s next asteroid mission will rely on the same technology as self-driving vehicles.Named after the Greek goddess of marriage, candidate ESA mission Hera will steer itself through space on the way to binary asteroid system Didymos.“If you think self-driving cars are the future on Earth, then Hera is the pioneer of autonomy in deep space,” according to Paolo Martino, lead systems engineer on the proposed mission.The probe, as described by ESA guidance, navigation, and control (GNC) engineer Jesus Gil Fernandez, will operate like an autonomous vehicle, “fusing data from different sensors to build up a coherent model of its surroundings.”“Hera’s most crucial data source will be its Asteroid Framing Camera,” he said in a statement, “combined with inputs from a star-tracker, laser altimeter, thermal infrared camera, plus inertial sensors including accelerometers.”By those powers combined, Hera can safely, and autonomously, navigate as close as 218 yards from the smaller of the two asteroids: 350-foot-wide Didymos B—affectionately known as the “Didymoon.”Due for launch in October 2023 and set to reach its target three years later, Hera will navigate in three different modes as it inches closer to the orbiting planetoid; the third and final mode is based on autonomous feature tracking with no absolute reference.“While the mission is designed to be fully operated manually from ground, the new technology will be tested once the core mission objectives are achieved and higher risks can be taken,” Martino said.Small asteroids hit Earth almost daily, but most break and burn in the upper atmosphere, leaving no discernable traces on our world. Objects larger than 0.6 miles—like the Chelyabinsk meteor, caused by an approximately 22-yard near-Earth asteroid—can have devastating effects.Using its laser altimeter, Hera scans Didymoon’s surface (via European Space Agency)In hopes of avoiding disaster, NASA recently began developing a spacecraft to pummel asteroids and knock them off a course for our planet.The Double Asteroid Redirection Test, or DART, will be the first space mission to demonstrate asteroid deflection by a kinetic impactor (i.e. strike the satellite to shift its orbit).In October 2022, the refrigerator-sized craft is expected to navigate to the asteroid system and use an onboard autonomous targeting system to aim itself at the Didymoon.That’s when the fireworks start: DART strikes the planetoid at a speed nine times faster than a bullet—about 3.7 miles per second‚jolting it ever so slightly off balance.Earth-based observatories can then see the impact and watch the change in orbit of Didymos B around Didymos A, allowing scientists to “better determine the capabilities of kinetic impact as an asteroid mitigation strategy,” according to NASA.DART and Hera are both part of the international Asteroid Impact and Deflection Assessment (AIDA) mission.More on Discovery Offers Glimpse Into ‘Dinosaur-Killer’ ImpactHubble Space Telescope Observes Rare Self-Destructing AsteroidNASA Reveals Big Surprises About Asteroid Bennu Stay on targetlast_img read more
